Iwis Drive Systems has introduced Flexon hardened, wear-resistant stainless steel flat top chains used, for example, for conveying bottle crates and returnable bottles. Surface-hardened to reduce wear and maintenance costs, the chains consist of plates that are connected to each other with single- and double-hinged joints. This design allows the construction of chains with a width of up to 305 mm for both straight-line and curved tracks, onto which the products can be directly placed. The combination of stainless steel and a hardened surface of up to 67 HRC results in rustproof, extremely wear-resistant chains. Hardened stainless steel versions of all current flat top chains are available, so existing plants can be retrofitted without needing to be modified.
